~ Cry of the Muse ~
Of-gentle beginning-and tender song ... !
That we would gratify love
in its truest affection.
Stand stead fast-
uphold it yield to no other-duty ... !
To-have our-souls' so-identified-unified coexisting-
exclusively-mid-this ... .
To-live, would I die to give the measure of my-soul-
just-to-have this ... once ... !
So place me within, make
me the-essence of-the-art-
lay me down carry me off-
as I would be a child lost
amid the grandeur-
of its promise ... !
Allow this ink to consume us be the
genuine eminence, what we reach-for
through the humble virtue,
heart-of this quill ... !
So all may view soar higher,
and even higher still.
taken within deep-
far and away beyond-
the bitter part of this world,
into the true benignity,
flourishing and forever evolving,
amid themselves ... !
Yes help me
build me up,
come find me ... !
Trick me friend by slight
of hand bend me-
yes break me down
shatter me again,
and again truly I care-not ... !
Fill this paper in-its preparedness ...
innocence ... verity, hope ... with the
sweet passion elation of our souls ... !
Yes carry me before this-vision ... !
Restrain me-not ... .
Set our-soul-free ... !
Please ... ?
That we may gratify love-uphold it.
Yes yield-then ... only-beauty ... !
Written to the (Braveheart) theme By: Enya
The expression of this poem was written from within the greater depths, of my soul. It was a cry of my muse.
The passion beside which I stand and the hope through which I write. The joy we both carry for the other,
and peace and faith in each other, in which we abide.
Before this writing my muse had taken a vacation. So willing, I am open to suggestion.
~ Thank you for reading this piece of my work ... God bless you ... (The reason that there are Hyphens "so
many of them") is because I have a computer that speaks them with a faster and slower and higher and
lower pitch of voice, giving a certain kind of ebb-and-flow to the work with a softer more fervent and realistic
and consistent tone, when I use the hyphens and other punctuation in the certain places that I do, when in
telling it what to do. Allowing it to speak in even a moderate voice if I choose. It sounds very free flowing
when I hear it, and I can only hope that you will be able to here it in the same way. Thank you for reading
and God bless you ... ~
